Help a Haitian girl realize her full potential.

Despite Haiti being one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, 80% of the schools are private. While most private schools in the United States provide a high quality educational experience, this is not always the case in Haiti. Approximately 75% of all teachers lack adequate training, and nearly 25% of teachers have never attended secondary school. Equally alarming is how few Haitian children attend school, especially girls. The percentage of children who complete primary school is low (50%), and sadly, only 20% of Haitian girls receive a secondary education (grades 7-13).

GreaterGood's GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide) program is dedicated to making sure girls around the world have access to a quality education. Currently, we are building a high school on the campus of the country's only recognized model primary school, Lekòl Kominotè Matènwa (LKM) in Matenwa, Haiti. In addition, we are expanding LKM's popular teacher training program. The new LKM High School will be girl friendly, requiring gender sensitivity training for teachers, students, and administrators, resulting in an environment where women feel respected and safe. Your support of GROW Haiti will be used to improve the quality of education in Haiti. Each donation will go towards books, tuition, and a teacher's salary.

You can help. Just $18.50 sends a Haitian girl to school for one month.


GreaterGood.org is devoted to addressing the health and well-being of people (particularly women and children), animals, and the planet.

In pursuit of these goals, GGO is focusing effort on young girls around the world -- their health and well-being, their safety, and their education. The GROW program will directly fund innovative, effective programs that keep girls in school throughout their secondary education years, wherever they are most needed.


Report from the Field
November 2014

SDHSfire "Just released - 100% of 6th graders from LKM passed Haiti's Sixth Grade National Exam! This compares to a 75% pass rate across the rest of the country. In Haiti, students must pass the exam in order to move on to 7th grade. Greatergood.org's GROW program identifies and supports schools that have the capacity to provide quality education while addressing the unique challenges faced by girls." - Sally Riggs, Director of Education and Health Outcomes.
GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide) in partnership with GreaterGood.org, Dream Weaver Foundation and The Literacy Site™ is dedicated to improving girls' wellbeing by supporting and monitoring innovative projects that identify and remove barriers to girls' education across the globe.
